    I have been working at Juniper Networks

    Pros

    Some smart people and good information sharing online tools are decent to work with. The culture is a competitive one.

    Cons

    There has been a lot of changes in the staffing in the last 2 years, and the culture has changed quite a bit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The need to have more education programs for partners is essential. More online tools and resources should be made available to partners to empower them with ability to create sales and opportunities. The product feature velocity needs to be improved in areas where there is plenty of catchup needed.

    Pros

    Good people, good management, its'a a company that 's big enough to engage the large opportunities and small enough to care about the outcome.

    Cons

    Product range is still somewhat limited. Market penetration is getting better but needs work. Marketing doens't exist.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend some money on marketing - for every dollar you put in you'll get back three,... That's how CISCO does it.

    I worked at Juniper Networks full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I've worked at Juniper multiple times, in multiple positions (all were technical). Overall I can say that the company is very focused on technology and customer experience. The options to grow are tremendous and Juniper actively encourages employees to expand their knowledge.

    Cons

    Travel policy is suboptimal (Glassdoor censors a bit). No business, not even on long-haul flights. Traffic in and out the Sunnyvale office is absolutely horrible. Food could be cheaper in the cafeteria.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More bonuses? :)

    Former Employee - Business Development Channels in Atlanta, GA (US)

    I worked at Juniper Networks full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Juniper is a generous company with liberal time off policies, much better than average compensation and great benefits. The sales team and sales leadership are well educated, experienced and in my experience a pleasure to work with.

    Cons

    The senior leadership has been disconnected, always scrambling to be as relevant to the market leader, their number one competitor Cisco Systems. Leadership changes are abrupt and poorly communicated with long pauses to the team, before a strategic direction is chosen. Juniper doesn't demand discipline from it's employees to support the company vision, leading to loss of confidence and market momentum. Knee jerk movement in and out of markets, products areas and go-to market methods has historically eroded customer and partner confidence.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leadership needs to hammer out a compelling long term vision and recruit support at all levels of the organization. i.e. "What's in the best interest of Juniper?" Communication is one of several cornerstone qualities that separates the good, high potential organizations from those that consistently perform, the truly great.
